Challenge mode is an event mode which was added in Sizzle Season 2023. Officially a replacement for Splatoon 2's League Battle,[1] Challenges are limited-time competitions of standard modes with unique in-match conditions. They can be played solo or with a team, and feature a two-hour ranked play window similar to League Battle, but unlike League Battle's constant rotations, the windows only occur at a few specific times during a season. Winning five games in a Challenge awards the player with a Shell-Out Token.

Description

Challenges are limited-time competitions of standard modes with unique in-match conditions. They can be played solo or with a team, and feature a two-hour ranked play window similar to League Battle, but unlike League Battle's constant rotations, the windows only occur at a few specific times during a season. The monthly event battles that appeared in Splatoon 2's League Battle mode were confirmed to return as Challenges.[1] Winning 5 games in a Challenge awards the player with a Shell-Out Token.

List of Challenges

As of Version 4.1.0, there are 9 known challenge modes. The frequency at which challenges occur is random, aside from the Monthly Challenge occurring once per month, and the New Season Challenge occurring at the start of the season.
